The forerunner of the Holmenkollen ski jump (“Holmenkollbakken”) was built in 1892, and in the intervening years many thrilling and keenly fought competitions have taken place in this traditional and world-renowned arena Holmenkollen is not merely a sports venue; it is also a tourist magnet of note. Drawing as it does well in excess of one million visitors annually, the jump is one of Norway’s most popular attractions.

The new Holmenkollen Ski Jump, designed by JDS Architects, will be a large hill with k-point 120 meters and jumps over 140 meters are expected. The new tower will consist of two floors. At the top of the tower there will be an outdoor viewing platform and the floor beneath will feature a new bar.
